Food Services

Bishop's Food Services department provides daily lunch, a morning snack, catering for the Parents' Association, school-sponsored events and operates a snack bar (see menu and prices). The director of the department, Sara Sweet, a registered dietitian, along with her talented staff focus on healthy, homemade food using local fresh ingredients.
